Professionalism and teamwork in an emergency situation

Jim McKernan, Bronson Employee

Today we recognize Nadine Hendrickson from Radiology Nursing for professionalism and teamwork in an emergency situation.

During a recent lunch break, Nadine saw a distressed employee at the doorway to one of our clinical departments.  Inquiring if things were OK, she discovered that the Rapid Response Team had been called to care for an unconscious patient.  Nadine quickly offered to help . . . joined the team with the patient, did a blood sugar, asked for IV supplies, accessed the patient, and with orders from a physician on-site delivered a dose of D50.  The patient woke up just as the Rapid Response Team arrived.

Thanks to Nadine for sharing her skills and demonstrating great teamwork.  And thanks to all across Bronson who provide help – great or small – to colleagues and patients in need.
